The Australian Subscription recipe failing

Hi All,

The recipe for The Australian newspaper is now failing, has been working fine.
It appears that the loginsection has changed. I have included the failure report

calibre, version 0.9.28 (win32, isfrozen: True)

InputFormatPlugin: Recipe Input running

mechanize._form.ControlNotFoundError: no control matching name 'username'

It appears that the control for username no longer exists, it is the same for password. I have inspected the element where you input email adsdress & it now appears to be called #cam_username, I have tried modifying the recipe using this control name but no luck. The url for The Australian is http://www.theaustralian.com.au/

I know this is where the problem is as if I remove my login & password I get the non subscription version OK
Could someone please help??

The recipe needs to use the second form, not the first. Edit "the_oz.recipe" and look for "get_browser(self)". Inside this function, change the following line -:
br.select_form(nr=0)
to
br.select_form(nr=1)

Looks like The Australian have slightly changed their site.

On Linux, the recipes live in /usr/share/calibre/builtin_recipes.zip. Un-zip and make the change to "the_oz.recipe" and re-zip.

Thanks Axiiom,

Your suggestion fixed the problem it also applies to the recipe for The Melbourne Herald Sun, sorry I took so long to reply, we are travelling & I have had no internet for the last couple of weeks
